Naples

My home, which could not be different from the warmth of the people, the smell of fried food and the empathy that a city like Naples transmits.
I often like to observe it crouching on the steps of Borgo Marinari close to the Castel dell’Ovo, then I have a pizza and realize that the happiness I am constantly searching for is in my hands and in my eyes, in front of Vesuvius.
